RE: wood props for F3A?

I would be VERY careful about using a wooden prop on the modern F3a engines, especially the four strokes. They are considerably more powerful than the old 60 two strokes and require the propellor to...

RE: Weight Requirements

I think that the size restriction should most definitely not be removed. Bigger planes fly better, that is an indisputed fact - unfortunately bigger planes also cost more, so those that could afford...

RE: Mixing for KE help.

A completely neutral plane is almost impossible to get - even the latest greatest F3a models will need some mixing to fly right in all conditions.

If the plane is built straight and the cg is in...

RE: camshaft timing on ys 140L

The two dots (one on the crank web and one on the camshaft) need to be both at the bottom. Note that the mark on the crank isn't exactly lined up with the crankpin - ignore the crankpin and go by the...

RE: YS 160 starter and mount

basically, if a regular clunk comes out of the fuel for even a split second then it will suck a bubble which would at best cause rough running and may kill the engine. With the supplied foam clunk,...

RE: Icepoint problem

I think the MK mount is not really up to the job, it was developed in the day of the 120 and the 160 is just too much for it. The Hyde mount is the best imho, but if you need a beam mount then try...

RE: CPLR new plane OSMOSE

BTW does anyone know the reason that CPLR has moved to CA from ZN? No reason why he shouldn't of course, but it does seem strange to have gone from his local company to one half way around the world....

RE: CPLR new plane OSMOSE

by all accounts the wing on the twister is very similar (if not actually identical) to that on the oxalys, so I would think that the plane is more similar than you think when you get down to it...

RE: Side thrust

I think you understand what you need to do to get the plane to fly in a straight line, and your reasoning for why it is required is correct (ie it's to do with spiralling air striking the fin, not a...

RE: hobbico spectrum

I flew one of these a few years back, and it flew nicely right up to the point where the stabs ripped off in s&l flight. The plane was almost new and had been built by a very experienced guy, trouble...

RE: ultralight shockie

thanks for those thoughts - encouraging, sounds like I should get a decent flying plane! Was interested to read about Devin's F3a shockie - that is the one I will be building (my favourite...

RE: axi 5330 - funny noise!

Hi all,

and firstly thanks very much for the replies so far. I have assumed it was a mechanical noise, but it is sounding here like it may be an issue with the speed controller? I have the...

RE: fitting batteries

Malcolm,

thanks for that reply - always good to hear from you! Unlike you I would rather turn the plane over and then only undo one screw! I have gone ahead with fitting the batteries into the...

axi 5330 - funny noise!

Hi,

I've just put together my first electric f3a model and so far it has gone pretty well - with the exception of a strange noise from the motor! I have an axi 5330/18 with an apc e 18x12, a CC...

RE: fitting batteries

This isn't myplane - rather a shot I found elsewhere on RCU, but it shows the cowling / pipe tunnel arrangement well. There's a small chin cowl which comes off, and then a fully enclosed pipe tunnel,...

RE: Trailing edges.....

It is supposed to act a bit like exponential, softening the response around neutral. It should also increase the drag. It is quite a common feature on many of the latest pattern designs, my Twister...

Hi,

I have got to the stage with my otop of fitting the batteries. I have seen pictures of installations where there is good access around the batteries - a firm plate and a few velcro ties...

RE: What mount best for ys160 dz

Hyde HCMY140ARA. This is the 140 size hyde mount with the alloy beams instead of the much heavier nylon beams. I am sure there are other mounts that work adequately, but the Hyde mount is the best...
